I always stay here when staying in truro, which is a few times a year. Best value for money guest house in the city, comfortable beds, well cooked breakfast, friendly and helpful hosts. It's a 15minute walk from the town centre, 10 minute walk from the train station, and only 5 minutes from a supermarket. They don't accept cards, but...

Walking distant to Truro towncentre but be ready for uphill walk. Set back from from A busy main road but room was at the back and quiet . Accommodation is clean and value for money. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was of quality products and hot. Checking in and out was easy.

Really pleased with my stay here. The staff were all helpful, efficient & lovely. The breakfast was substantial & of good quality. The room was large & comfortable. It was very clean and warm. In fact all that you'd want from such a place. The furnishings didn't match but if that's my only complaint it's hardly significant. The only thing...

This guesthouse was a lovely building with a real comfortable bed and lovely pillows. Good WiFi in the room. A real hearty breakfast to set you on your way. It is situated on the top road before you go down into the town but nice and quiet. Real friendly staff. And a nice view of the cathedral from bedroom window.

Pretty average and what I guess you expect at this price point. Reasonable suze room with small ensuite bathroom with shower cubicle and electric shower. Would have helped if I had been told that you have to put on an outside wall switch before you can use it. Also the over basin light didnt work so dark and as woman...

I stayed at The Donnington Guest house recently and I chose to walk from the station. The walk was a 15 minute, uphill walk with the steepest part just before The Donnington, up Chapel hill. I reached the top and turned left and found The Donnington just along the road. There was a reasonable parking area in the front but...

I stayed for 2 nights as was down working in Truro so wasn't after anything in the way of luxury. It had a bed and a roof I was happy. Down sides, duvet I felt was too thin for the time of year, luckily I had a blanket in the car which helped. TV didn't appear to work. Plus points,...
